It was time and Ron had a really rough last season here.
The fact is that Tepper is a new owner and they usually perform very poorly while making mistakes where they either learn or don't. Unlike coaches, they are not getting fired. It was discussed as a likely possibility when Tepper bought the team. If I had to wish I would wish Tepper would learn faster and not disappear like a fart in the wind when it gets this ugly.
Dear Mr Tepper,
I'm a german panther fan for 10 years now.
Here are a lot of football fans, but most of them are pats, steelers , raiders or especially Brady fans.
Do you want to conquer the german market?
Then please, please end this poo.
Rhule isn't it.
It's your turn now to correct this big mistake.
Come on, do it now.
This summarized (nicely) the predicament the Panthers created. This is why I see them leaving BC at LT, Elflein at C, and signing 2 higher end guards in free agency. Then they will draft a QB (they are all developmental in this draft) and hope that he eventually takes the job from Darnold. This way, we get to see Darnold behind an improved line and we get a young QB to develop. Not my plan, but I see them doing it.
